Certified inspector through both American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) and International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI)
- ASHI, requires their professional home inspectors to have passed the most rigorous technical examinations in effect today, including inspectors who are required to perform more than 250 professional inspections before they’re even allowed to call themselves ”certified”.
InterNACHI Has very high standards for joining and maintaining your certification as a home inspector.
Unlike other home inspection associations, InterNACHI front-ends many of its certification requirements and requires that its members take many courses and examinations after joining. In other words, all of our certified members must fulfill certification requirements before they can become certified. Other associations have few or no entrance requirements, and encourage their members and associates to go out and perform hundreds of unqualified inspections for poor, unsuspecting consumers.
As an added level of competency, I have completed and passed the National Home Inspection exam (a third party independent proctored test) to assure my clients that I’m qualified to do the inspection of their new home. I like to do one inspection a day to give my clients the best inspection possible and to take the time to write a thorough and easily understood inspection, not trying to rush through an inspection to get to the next.
